Which toilet paper is best?

Here's a "Scientific" study, of four different toilet paper brands and how they dissolve in water. The results actually surprised me. BTW: The guy's helper really contributed a lot!

Very interesting! A plumber told us to use Scott TP. I would have never imagined Charmin Ultra Soft would be a good choice!

What a cute helper! We also use Scott TP as it was recommended for RVing but, by this test, would consider the Charmin UltraSoft.

We have done this test every year, and every year another one comes out on top.... or bottom.... or whatever. Last year Price Chopper name brand won, but I think we went with Charmin Ultra Soft. And yes, the helper sure was cute.

Well that's interesting. I did my own test but didn't use closed jars. Just put a piece of Charmin and Scott's in a cup of water overnight. It seemed to me the Scott's broke up faster. However, I don't have a problem with something named "Ultra Soft!"

I've given this some thought and have to query a question to the "which toilet paper is best?"

Is best in which paper fragments the most in a short period of time thus may be considered consumer convenient or is best the paper that is the most bio-degradable and/or environmentally friendly.

SO what paper is REALLY the best, bester and bestest?

Looking at it from that point of view, I think I would still go with the Charmin. If it breaks down that easily in plain water, that would give it an edge as far as how you are looking at it.

The way I see it, the ease with which it breaks down in plain water, would mean a happier black tank AND a happier sewer system as a whole...

But is it happier to the bacteria that needs to feed on it!

What may LOOK good may not BE good. I was under the impression (maybe wrongly so) that the RV/Marine/Camping toilet paper was more environmental friendly. Just advertising hype? ........maybe/probably?!

All I know is I have 4 or so rolls of Coleman and 4 or so rolls of some other "camping" paper and the Charmin is, well softer, butt what can I say?

The Coleman and other paper is lighter and may be more suited to rough back woods hiking where a pit toilet is in order.

The TT is closer to a home type situation with septic systems in most cases.

So for the "Experiment" we either have to put a window on an septic tank or maybe we can have "Myth Busters" do it. I'm for "Myth Busters" myself.

Butt then it is "A Dirty Job" so how many shows kind I inject into this post? Maybe just one more...."How it is Made" come's to mind.

FWIW, I came across my instruction sheet for the 5star Happy Camper today. I specifically recommends against the use of RV toilet paper. The reason given was: "Contains chemicals"

We did our own comparison yesterday between Charmin Ultra Soft and Scott 1000 Sheet. The Scott dissolved faster and better, but not by much
